Policies for Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas Sponsored Professional Development Sessions:

  • Registration accompanied by payment is required to complete registration for any class that is sponsored by Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas. The deadline for registration of classes occurring on a weekday is 12:00 p.m. the business day before the class is scheduled. The deadline for registration of classes occurring on Saturdays is 8:00 a.m. the Friday before the class is scheduled. You may register online, by mail or by phone to pay with a credit or debit card. Payment will not be accepted at class.
  • If you cancel by the registration deadline for the class, the fee may be transferred to another class to be held in the future. Refunds are not available. In cases of emergencies (illness or other unplanned situation), you may call and cancel up to 2 hours (during normal business hours) prior to the time the class is scheduled to begin. If you are calling after hours (after 5:00 p.m. on a weekday or over the weekend), please leave a message with the time of your call and the reason for your late cancellation. You will only be able to transfer your payment one time to a different class. If you are unable to attend the class you have been transferred to, there will be no refunds or further transfers. Refunds or transfers will not be issued for those who fail to notify us if they are unable to attend.
  • A minimum of 10 class participants is required. A class with insufficient enrollment may be canceled by Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas. Paid registrants may elect to be added to a future class.
  • Participants arriving more than 10 minutes after the start time of the class are invited to stay, but will not be awarded in-service hours.
  • In cases of inclement weather, every effort will be made to make a decision about canceling class three hours prior to the scheduled class start time. Registered participants will be notified by phone. If you have any questions, you are welcome to call the Topeka office at 785-357-5171 to determine whether a class will be held.
  • Please do not bring children to any in-service class.
